As a general consumer, do you find YouTube useful in product research? For me it is a godsend, especially for drugstore make up. If I can get a couple of reviews of a product and depending on my interest level, these factors will sway me in whether or not I choose to purchase a product. In general, YouTube is an excellent forum for almost any conversation.
As an educator, I use YouTube as a resource for instruction. The amount of educational videos is astounding!! Over all YouTube gets an "A" from me! And this brings me to the heart of this post -my purpose on YT.
As a newbie to beauty blogging, vlogging and makeup artistry, I use YT as a video portfolio, if you will. I enjoy adding to the conversation of makeup and beauty - but I also like to watch old videos, watch my progress, critique myself, and I look for others to encourage and constructively critique my techniques, knowledge and understanding. The platform is ideal to broadcast to the world. Once I come into my own, I believe and have faith that people will WANT to hear what I have to say and SEE how I work.
